"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Don’t Give Up!

WomenTalkingHiRes

Ladies, don’t give up!! 

We have to fight to keep that love alive in our marriages.  Remember back to when we were so deeply in love with our husbands, how we were so excited to see them, we took the time to put on makeup, to fix ourselves up and care what we looked like because we knew that would be pleasing to him. 

Remember the good things about him, why it was we first fell in love with him, how we loved to be near them, to touch them and kiss them! 

Stop focusing on the things that annoy us and start remembering why we fell in love with him!!

God put us together for a reason.  He never said it would be easy but He promised to be there with us! 

When we are having problems in our marriage we need to go to the Lord first.  Pray for our husbands and pray for ourselves.  Pray for strength and wisdom to do what the Lord wants us to do.

Just never give up!  When we go back to the way it was when we were first together, where he could do no wrong, we talked him up to our friends and family.  He was (and still is) our strong man that we loved, trusted in, confided in, and wanted his help and advice in everything.  That is what will help our marriages, to soften his heart again and make him remember those days too!! 

Love is a gift from God.  We love because He first loves us.  We also love our husbands because they love us!  Remember that and don’t give up!

Please just don’t leave them, pray for them and for yourself. 

 

This may not mean much to some but it is what I was given for a friend of mine. 
Malachi 2:14-16

New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Yet you say, “For what reason?”
      Because the LORD has been witness
      Between you and the wife of your youth,
      With whom you have dealt treacherously;
      Yet she is your companion
      And your wife by covenant.
15 But did He not make them one,
      Having a remnant of the Spirit?
      And why one?
      He seeks godly offspring.
      Therefore take heed to your spirit,
      And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.
16 “ For the LORD God of Israel says
      That He hates divorce,
      For it covers one’s garment with violence,”
      Says the LORD of hosts.
      “ Therefore take heed to your spirit,
      That you do not deal treacherously.”
